The WAC bracket looks very ordinary and one where NMSU will face its biggest nemesis of the season in the second round in Nevada.
Of course we're bypassing Idaho as a team that can pull an upset but common. If NMSU loses to the Vandals the world would appear to be caving in. Nevada will pose a serious challenge as we all know what the Wold Pack did to NMSU this year.
Still, it's hard to beat someone three times in one season as the Wolf Pack will be trying to do to the Aggies. That game will be a major battle, one of monster proportions and should be intense. One would hope that the Pan Am sells out for the game. With the way attendance has been this year, I would think it to be unlikely but who knows? It will be a a slugfest and one I can't wait to see.
On the other side of the bracket, Utah State is playing great ball. They had road issues at the outset of the season but have come on strong down the stretch, winning three straight away from home to get the No. 1 seed. They swept Boise State this year and should be in the finals. Either way, assuming the scenarios play out the way they should, NMSU will have two tough games in front of them. The first against the Wolf Pack. If they can find a way to get past that, they will go head to head with the UtAgs. Don't be fooled by the last time these two teams met. USU is much stronger than that and is back at full strength.
